Silver pewter oak leaf handmade brooch
Beautiful pewter brooch with the shape of a oak leaf handmade in the UK by Glover & Smith from lead free pewter and inspired by nature. The oak leaf is a powerful symbol, the Oak tree is part of the beech family.
Oak leaves also represent strength, stability or nobility. When oak leaves and acorns are combined, the entire symbol can stand for power, authority or victory. For that reason, it is also commonly used on military tombs.
Lead free pewter is not reactive with acidic and alkaline foods unlike other precious metals, and the surface will never flake or chip. Modern pewter is 92% pure tin and small amounts of copper and other metals to give additional strength. It is a plentiful, non-toxic resource which has little or no impact on the environment. This eco-friendly metal does not need polishing like silver and it does not become dull.
